Roselle Cheesecake Pin It
The process of making this cheesecake is similar with Japanese Cotton Cheesecake. It requires melting the cream cheese instead of creaming. After seeing this recipe from 茄子,袅袅烘焙香 remind me of not baking cheesecake with this method for quite sometimes. It yields finer cake texture compare with creaming method. Whoever likes Japanese Cotton Cheesecake you going to love this one too ^^ Roselle Cheesecake Ever since I make pickled roselle and roselle jam I wanted to use in decorate cheesecake. Being inspired by Sonia aka Nasi Lemak Lover here come my Roselle Cheesecake. Roselle Cheesecake

Cheesecake recipe reference from 茄子,袅袅烘焙香 Cake deco inspired by Nasi Lemak Lover Roselle Cheesecake 

300g cream cheese
200g whipping cream(dairy)
40g corn flour(shifted)
4 egg yolks
4 egg white
80g sugar
½ teaspoon white vinegar (or lemon juice)
~Cheesecake 1. Line the bottom and side of 7" round baking pan. Set aside.
2.Double-boil cream cheese and whipping cream until smooth. Remove from heat.
3. After a minute off the heat add in yolks. Whisk to combine.
*Make sure the cheese mixture is not too hot. Hot cream will COOK the yolks. If the bowl not hot to touch, the temperature should be right.
4. Then add in sifted flour and whisk to combine. Set aside.
5. In another clean bowl beat egg whites until foamy. Divide the sugar into 2 equal portions. Add in 1st portion and beat till no longer foamy. Add in vinegar and 2nd portion of sugar. Continue beat until it reaches soft peak form. (soft peak is reached when the beaters are pulled out of the whites and the peaks that form droop)
6. Scoop 1/3 of the egg whites into cream mixture. Use hand whisk to mix it evenly into cheese batter.
7. Next pour the cheese mixture into remaining whites. Whisk to combine. Once most of whites incorporate switch to spatula. Scraping remaining whites at the sides bowl and gently fold till well combined.
8. Pour batter into lined pan. Steam baked in preheated oven at 120C for about 1 hour 10 minutes.
* Do adjust your oven accordingly.
* I used steam baked method. I place the hot water pan in the lower rack and the pan at the middle rack. Therefore not need to worry about the water sipping inside my cake. Save wrapping too. Do find out here how I place my pan.
9. After the baking time is over, slightly open the oven door and let the cake cool completely inside the oven. Once cool. Keep in fridge for several hours or overnight.
